Then I got sick and my boyfriend and I have been passing it back and forth! Yuck. Things are settling down now and I wanted to jump on while I had the opportunity to use all the cute Easter emoticons! <BR> <BR> D...

Pretty aweful! One of my colleuges has a FitBit as well too so she kicked me out of my office for a walk. So I went for a walk through my building ... Wed, 6 Mar 2013 20:56:22 EST Yoga Challenge Days 2 & 3 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5274679 Forgot to blog yesterday! <em>100</em> I did my yoga challenge yesterday morning. <em>414</em> I'm actually starting to really like morning workouts. Pretty surprised by that, but it's been getting really hard to do my workouts in the afternoon after work. All I want to do is get home and relax. <em>102</em> But at the same time, I can't get up any earlier to workout before I go to work, so I can really only do it on days I'm not working. <em>24</em> Confusing to schedule! <em>1... Tue, 5 Mar 2013 17:41:45 EST Yoga Challenge Day 1 & Attitude http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5271336 I decided to get into a Yoga routine again in my efforts to jump start everything again. <em>416</em> I did yoga about two years ago. I took a class and then I completed the challenge. I think the last challenge was a little longer though. <BR> <BR> So I'm using Yoga Journal, and the 21 day challenge. You can select beginner or intermediate. The website is here: <link>www.yogajournal.com/21daychallenge/ </link> <BR> <BR> I am doing the beginner one again. I started day 1 today! <em>24... Sun, 3 Mar 2013 15:50:10 EST Fitbit Review, etc http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5269884 Thanks to some motivating blogs today, I made it to the gym for my weights workout! <em>223</em> I have been I think twice in the last 2 weeks, very unmotivated. I was reading some Spark blogs though, and despite being really sore from Zumba yesterday, I went! <em>355</em> A lot of times, especially on Saturdays, I cut my workout short and do my 15 minute circuit instead of 30. No problem with 30 today, though! <em>362</em> <BR> <BR> Fitbit seemed a little short, but I didn't have ... Sat, 2 Mar 2013 14:38:05 EST Fitbit! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5268726 I just got a Fitbit Zip today! It's pink, tiny, and cute. :) I just synced my accounts but it doesn't look like my journal synced. Will see how this works. <BR> <BR> I did a new band exercise yesterday and I was still hurting when I went to Zumba this morning. <em>317</em> <em>352</em> Now I'm crazy tired! <em>102</em> Fri, 1 Mar 2013 15:00:41 EST I'm baccck! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5255558 Yes, I've said that before! I've gained some weight but I have a good feeling this time and am motivated. I'm planning a trip to Europe! Wish me luck! Hope everyone's doing great! Mon, 18 Feb 2013 23:13:29 EST Stability Ball? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4817157 Thinking about using a stability ball as my computer chair? <BR> <BR> Suggestions/tips? <BR> <BR> How do you decide what size to get? <BR> <BR> I have a bad neck and back from doing so much computer work - do you think it will help or hinder? <BR> <BR> Thanks all! <BR> <BR> <em>322</em> Mon, 2 Apr 2012 16:31:07 EST Life goes on http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4572757 So it's been a bad year for me, healthy/weight wise. I've put on 30 pounds and lost most my good habits. I have a wonderful new boyfriends who likes to treat and feed me. I had 3 mono which kept me away from all physical activity from December - April. My mother had 2 back surgeries which didn't go well and kept all my time in the hospital taking care of her. Then I injured my toe which has kept me out of shoes and the gym for about 3 months. <BR> <BR> Needless to say, when things get off co... Mon, 7 Nov 2011 11:54:16 EST Discouraged :( http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4225358 I'm so discouraged! Being so sick really wrecked me. I lost some good weight and finally broke a barrier while I was sick, but being banned from the gym for 3-4 months destroyed my habits. I can't get back into a steady routine again and my eating is, well, ugh. <BR> <BR> I thought I budged it last week when I went down 2lb, but now I'm up 6 from that. Of course, I think weighing every day is not helping me very much at all!! <BR> <BR> I went to yoga Monday night, didn't do anything yesterd... Wed, 11 May 2011 11:29:47 EST Emotions out of whack http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4191757 So lately, I find myself having a great day, everything going ok, spending the day with my guy, etc. <em>51</em> Then all of a sudden I'm in a crappy mood for no reason. <em>129</em> It's driving me crazy! <em>39</em> I don't think he's enjoying it very much either. Le sigh. Don't know what to do about that. Maybe just getting everything else on track will help. <BR> <BR> <BR> So sore from yoga last night. <em>415</em> Glad I went though. Today I think we're taking the kids to the p... Tue, 26 Apr 2011 12:43:30 EST Starting Today http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4189411 I think I'm doing good today. <BR> <BR> I actually measured my breakfast today <em>301</em> and remembered to add a banana. <em>265</em> I'm eating an Albanian lunch, which is so insanely good I can't even describe! And packed a couple of cups of baby carrots since I'm constantly starving lately. <em>291</em> <BR> <BR> Tonight I have yoga. <em>414</em> Last week was canceled which was disappointing so I found a 21-day challenge with the Yoga Journal and started that this week. I've ... Mon, 25 Apr 2011 12:55:36 EST Getting better? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4160787 Yoga last night went well! I'm SO sore though. I figured I'd get back to the gym for a walk/run today after work. I haven't set foot in that gym in a long time. But I went for a half hour walk outside at work today and am sore from last night and my side started hurting again. We'll see. I'll try to get there but if it doesn't work I'll at least get my hula hoop back out! <BR> <BR> Anyway, if I can just shed a couple pounds so I know my body is back on track, I'll be good to go and can keep ... Tue, 12 Apr 2011 13:35:09 EST Well, well, well... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4151445 Deep subject? <BR> <BR> I've been on a loooong break from my goals. And the 8 pound weight gain is the proof. Sigh. <BR> <BR> I was banned for a very long time, 3 months, from running and weights and anything that could make my spleen worse with mono. Every time I went back, it got worse. <BR> <BR> And I've been under a ton of stress that's brought my migraines back on. <BR> <BR> Needless to say, I'm extremely frustrated. I was doing sooo good. No my motivation is shot and my hard core wi... Fri, 8 Apr 2011 10:36:43 EST Today is the day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3913725 Well, this is obviously because I've been sick and lost 7 pounds this week. BUT, I've finally broken the nasty 200lb barrier. Hopefully when I can start eating again, I can maintain and not just too far back up. I'm sure I few will come back as I restock my fuel, but maybe it's a better start. <BR> <BR> When I woke up this morning, I was almost excited because my throat didn't seem as miserable... until I swallowed, or I should say tried to swallow. I'm so sick of this. I'm SOOOO hungry!! A ... Tue, 11 Jan 2011 11:42:57 EST I'm Back! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3910413 Wow.. October 31, 2010 was my last post?! I didn't think it was THAT bad! Anyway, if you all remember my new Albanian friends, I think they kicked me off my band wagon. Gained a few pounds, got super lazy. Felt gross. <BR> <BR> <BR> Right now I'm deathly (seemingly) sick with mono and strep. Haven't been able to choke down more than super liquidy yogurt/fruit smoothies for about 5 days now. Needless to say, I'm at my lowest weight. haha 200.4. <em>192</em> That means I've got .4 to reach ... Mon, 10 Jan 2011 13:55:08 EST Update! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3751891 I've been horrible at keeping up with SP lately. Obviously. lol <BR> <BR> <BR> So after I finished C25K, I had my trip to Chicago. That was great! But I got sick, which was not so great. So I didn't do anything since my last day of C25K until this Thursday. On Thurs I was feeling super lazy and went to the gym late at night to hit the treadmill with a friend. So I finally did a run inside. It was harder but that could have been because of not doing anything for almost two weeks, and I think... Sun, 31 Oct 2010 13:50:43 EST W9D2 C25K - C25K Finished! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3722528 Saturday I completed the Couch to 5k program! Amazing that the 60 second runs originally felt like I was dying. haha Now I'm to the point where I could have kept running if I wanted to. <BR> <BR> <BR> I decided to ditch the 30 minute routine because I wanted to be sure I hit the full 5k. So I tracked my warm up walk mileage on my phone app, added 3.1mi to that when I started the run and off I went. I took the big loop around the lake, usually I do the small twice. So I did that one twice an... Mon, 18 Oct 2010 08:17:44 EST W9D1 C25K http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3712188 Again with forgetting to post!! Only have a minute before meetings but... <BR> <BR> I finished week 9 day 1 yesterday. I ran the long loop around the lake and it was beautiful out! I'm a little disappointed that the 30 minutes wasn't really a 5k. I tracked where it would have reached 5k, so if not tomorrow, then on Saturday I will just run to that point. I was running faster too, but I let my mind take me away so I probably could have kicked it up a bit. <BR> <BR> Anywho, we're almost there... Wed, 13 Oct 2010 08:35:59 EST W8D3 C25K http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3707092 Looks like I forgot to post on Saturday. I did finish week 8 on Saturday. I actually went with a girlfriend but ended up running seperately. Which was good, I used it as some thing time. Completely useless think time, but of well! <BR> <BR> Gotta get back to the gym today. I missed Wed and Fri two weeks ago 'cause I was sick. Then I didn't go this Wed 'cause of meetings after work or Fri 'cause I was feeling lazy I guess. Bad habit to get into. So, I'll go today right after work. <BR> <BR> ... Mon, 11 Oct 2010 08:33:11 EST W8D2 C25K http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3700265 Finished day 2 today. It was kinda rough. Bored with the park. Distracted mind. Tired body. I miss sleep dearly. I can't wait to be on vacation in two weeks in my mans arms so I can finally get some quality sleep. <em>102</em> <em>26</em> <BR> <BR> <BR> Zumba was tonight also. I only have one more class next week and am missing the very last one while on vaca. I unfortunately haven't lost 20 pounds doing it. haha Not that I expected to in 5 weeks or whatever it's been! But 6 would have b... Thu, 7 Oct 2010 20:57:39 EST W8D1 C25K http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3696124 As a sign to myself that there's too much going on lately.. I just re-typed this title 4 times, from W8, to W6, to W7, and back to W8. I don't even know what's going on anymore!! <em>100</em> Anyway, I completed week *8* day 1 yesterday. I had to run a different route because I think I'm getting a little bored with it. It did go pretty good though. I was kind of in a hurry and don't think I stretched as much or as well as I normally do, and so I could feel it in my legs about 10 minutes in.... Wed, 6 Oct 2010 09:18:22 EST Since June.. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3688897 I like to compare everything between vacations and/or seeing the deary. Which is pretty much the same time spans. haha So I'm going to take my measurements now and compare them all time and since June. And then I'm going to hula hoop until football at 1 because I feel like I've been slacking. <em>281</em> <BR> <BR> Totals so far... <BR> Bust - 9.25 in <BR> Waist - 11.50 in <BR> Abdomen - 7.50 in <BR> Hips - 10.00 in <BR> Thighs (doubled to count both) - 16.00 in <BR> Arms (doubled to count... Sun, 3 Oct 2010 12:52:05 EST W7D3 C25K & Goals http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3687095 Just finished week 7! Pretty cold out today. I was thinking about not going this morning because of being sick. But my main worry is it turning into pneumonia again, so I figured keeping my lungs working nice and strong was the number 1 most important thing right now. <em>282</em> I'm not feeling too bad actually. Probably better since the run and a super long hot shower. haha I need a jacuzzi, bad! <BR> <BR> <BR> So the running hasn't really been hard. Very hmappy about that. It's border... Sat, 2 Oct 2010 14:36:34 EST W7D2 C25K & Zumba http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3683618 On my way to bed, but a super quick blog to serve as my tracking.. <BR> <BR> <BR> I did manage to get my run in today. I just kept thinking that if I put it off, I wouldn't do it. Too much going on lately, I didn't want to risk it. Even with being sick because it was a very nice day today, if I had to go tomorrow it'd probably be raining and make me worse. Zumba was a little tough tonight though with the coughing but I took certain things a little slower. I took yesterday off from the gym a... Thu, 30 Sep 2010 23:56:38 EST My Progress According to Proof http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3680281 So I've finally gotten around to collecting some pictures. I've been meaning to pull Christmas ones together, since that's always the same view/shot, but these ones aren't awesome quality, so I found others. My boyfriend is going to be jealous that I'm sharing the last picture, especially since I was hesitant putting pictures on here! Oh well, jealousy is good in a relationship, right? haha <em>212</em> I'll put this in my pictures as well since it's really small here. <BR> <BR> <img src=... Wed, 29 Sep 2010 18:02:27 EST W7D1 C25K http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3677632 Started week 7 in 50 degree rain while sick. <em>257</em> <em>27</em> <em>273</em> <em>282</em> <em>312</em> I really hope I don't regret that. I was just telling someone how miserable last year was. I got sick beginning of September with what ended up being strep throat, that turned into swine flu which progressed into a rare pneumonia that 2 rounds of pneumonia drugs didn't cure. 5 rounds of antibiotics and 2 of steroids and about 2 months on my butt later.... well let's just say Chic... Tue, 28 Sep 2010 18:09:22 EST What's in the name? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3673343 This was on a SP friends' blog, and I really liked it. Also, I don't want to lose it, so I'm 'borrowing" it and putting it in my blog! <BR> <BR> <BR> "And one day he will realize how amazing she was, and when he does, she will be waking up to the man who already knew." <em>26</em> <BR> <BR> <BR> You could say it's appropriate today... I've got a lot to sort out in this ridiculous head of mine. <em>40</em> <BR> <BR> <BR> Funny that it kinda goes along with what I was going to blog ab... Mon, 27 Sep 2010 08:52:35 EST W6D3 C25K - check! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3669705 Pretty chilly out today, mid-50s. <em>465</em> I was procrastinating a little bit, but finally made it out for my run. I think I must have been going a little faster because I remember the 20 minute run took me just around the lake once. So I figured 25 minutes would be a little more than one lap. It was just about 2. I actually remember trying to slow a couple times, but I'm a fast walker in general so I failed. haha But I just didn't want to burn out. I think the cool breeze helped a lot.... Sat, 25 Sep 2010 14:25:39 EST W6D2 C25K (intervals done) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3668106 Some of you have noticed I haven't been around much. Thank you for taking the time to notice and comment! <em>247</em> I am actually going great! Maybe not weight wise, but I'm sticking to the plan and am feeling pretty good overall lately. Just been way busy. <BR> <BR> Yesterday was day 2 of week 6 and thus the last interval run. Tomorrow is the longest at 25 minutes straight. This week has been harder than the 20 minute run last Saturday for some reason. Probably 'cause it's been hot? I ... Fri, 24 Sep 2010 17:29:53 EST W6D1 C25K http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3661087 I haven't posted in a couple of days, been CRAZY busy at work. In fact, this will be super short, but will log my C25K progress. <BR> <BR> Yesterday I completed Week 6 Day 1. It was actually harder than the 20 minute run on Saturday, but it was about 90 degrees and a bit humid, so that had a lot to do with it, I'm sure. Anyway, it's done! Can't believe it's week 6 already! <BR> <BR> Meeting with a hopeful new client today, and another that I haven't heard from in a while. So hopefully I can... Wed, 22 Sep 2010 10:09:22 EST My dancing shoes http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3651690 ... got abused a little bit last night. haha My legs are tiiiired!! <em>335</em> <em>346</em> <BR> <BR> <BR> Only got a few hours sleep, but for some reason couldn't sleep more. Sun is out and all. <em>67</em> Hoping to get a little shopping done today. I have like one warm shirt that still fits and as I was dancing last night I realized I was doing a lot of holding my pants up and my belt wouldn't tighten anymore. haha <em>9</em> <BR> <BR> <BR> So that's the plan for today! Then f...

I cannot believe how "easy" it felt! No side pain. Legs weren't really tired. Just kept talking to myself, thanks to the advice of some of you... "half way done probably".. "this is what you've been training for, legs, now do it!".. etc. And the next thing I know, I'm done! Actually my app died again and started playing an audiobook <em>335</em> haha so I looked at my phone and I was 1 minu...

It's been such a crazy week and it's only going to continue!! <em>40</em> <BR> <BR> <BR> I did complete day 2 of week 4 yesterday. <em>248</em> I gotta be honest, I was really worried about those 8 minute runs! <em>198</em> When I was leaving the office to go to the park and run, we got hit with a heavy storm, hail predicted and all. <em>54</em> <em>257</em> <em>27</em> I actually sat in my car for 40 minutes in my running c...

Apparently there are many things wrong with me! Lol I don't think I like being criticized. <em>314</em> <BR> <BR> <BR> Another kinda crappy day. I just need to relax and a massage and I can't do either. Someone call me and take me out already!! <em>39</em> <BR> <BR> <BR> In other news, I think the new 9 on the scale is sticking.. saw a 7, but that was a shocker, the 9 I fought my butt off f...

My feet have been sore for a couple of days thanks to a 2 mile hike in heels with my partner at work. And my knees are hurting some. But I finished it! No time to write much today, busy busy week! <em>185</em> <em>4</em> Tue, 14 Sep 2010 17:02:34 EST Hmmm http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3633403 So I'm in a good mood, but I'm confused and impatient. I want it to be the weekend already!! <em>236</em> <BR> <BR> <BR> Hopefully the week will go quickly. I have my free 1 hour massage today. Then it's time for football! But I also need to catch up with a girlfriend. <em>281</em> <em>220</em> <BR> <BR> Tomorrow is day 1 of week 5 of C25K. <em>182</em> <BR> <BR> <BR> Wednesday I have a half hour fitness assessment for the 1 hour with a personal trainer that I won (same place as ...

Don't toy with me Mr. Scale! <em>192</em> <BR> <BR> <BR> Had sooo much fun last night with some old friends and some new ones. Way too much partying for me though, I'm not used to be out late anymore. lol <em>236</em> I got home at 4am, had someone crash on my couch and had to get up at 9 to take them home.

Well, I had a dry drive, and the second I turned into the park it started raining! <em>27</em> <em>257</em> I did my warmup, started the first 3 minute run and... you'll never guess... yup, app died again! So I started over. Sigh. Then I finished the whole thing. Cold and dripping wet. <em>27</em> <em>185</em> But I've earned my new shirt! So today (if I decide to go back out in this rain!)

I swear my phone never ever rings.. last night I had it off the hook for hours between friends and people looking at my car. No, not sold yet. The new Cruze comes out within the next couple of weeks, cross your fingers that that's my car and I can end this nonsense! <em>226</em> It's been a long time since I've spent a half hour on the phone with anyway. I'm not even that lucky with my man! Speaking of which.. it's ringing! haha Someone get it for me. <em>211</em> <BR> ...

She brought me a Copacabana shirt! She's so cool. And it's a large which actually fits me now (should I be happy about that?). I thought it was really nice of her to think of us. <em>48</em> <BR> <BR> <BR> I finished day 2 of week 4 today. I'm not sure if it wa... Thu, 9 Sep 2010 17:25:31 EST Goodnight Moon... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3619945 Today I booked the hour with a personal trainer and hour massage that I won playing Blackjack a while back. Can't wait! They're both next week. <BR> <BR> The running is kicking my butt though. Between that and the canoeing on Monday, I was pretty tired at the gym today. <em>328</em> <em>330</em> I tried to push the machines hard, I was a little frustrated because today was measurement day. My weight was back to my stuck 12 even though the scale showed a 10 the other day and 11 has been th... Wed, 8 Sep 2010 21:08:15 EST W4D1 C25K (whew!) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3615831 <em>249</em> My phone app seems to be having issues again. It quit on me again when I was in the middle of the first 5 minute run. I start dragging my feet thinking it's the apocalypse and decide to pull out my phone (which I try to avoid so I can't see how long is left) and it had surely paused. <em>101</em> So I (still running.. er bounce walking haha) quickly flip over to Endomondo which I have running in the background and quickly add up 5 minute warm up, 3 minute run, 1.5 minute walk... Tue, 7 Sep 2010 17:21:10 EST Nap anyone? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3608806 Went out with the girls last night. Lotsa fun! A new friend got a cute new lil farm house, so I went over to check that out. Then we went out for drinks and then to the late showing at the comedy club. <em>103</em> Love the comedy club! It's exactly what I need lately, too. Discovered a new (new for me anyway) dinner downtown. 24/7, small, unique little place. Had to chill out a bit before going home and we were all starving. Needless to say I didn't really want to chow down on a greasy che... Sun, 5 Sep 2010 11:53:48 EST W3D3 C25K (Reward Determined) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3606742 I've just completed week 3! <em>244</em> <em>185</em> It's cold and windy out.. so the walking portion wasn't that awesome. haha Run went well. Not much side pain, though my legs were tired. I should have saved my hula hoop workout for after the run not before. <BR> <BR> <BR> I got run down by two guys with the Book of Mormon.. twice! They're determined! <em>296</em> <BR> <BR> <BR> I've been wanting a running jacket type thing for a while now, and always ended up deciding I didn't nee... Sat, 4 Sep 2010 14:38:28 EST Lonely? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3602993 A <em>220</em> <em>247</em> to all my SP friends. Because I need it! I hope you all have a great holiday weekend (and hopefully some time off to do something enjoyable!). <BR> <BR> <BR> Tomorrow is the end of Week 3 running for me. It seems like I've been doing it longer, but at the same time, it seems like I just started. If that makes any sense! <em>182</em> My knee is still bothering me... but it's not from running, I don't think. It's more like a bruise-hurt, and it's the same as i... Fri, 3 Sep 2010 08:44:39 EST W3D2 C25K http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3602033 Way too tired for a decent entry today - but just to keep track of this, I did complete day 2 of week 3 this afternoon. It was kind of rainy, but overall it seemed surprisingly easy. In fact, my phone rang when I was half way through, which apparently made my app quit. So I started over and did all but the last run again. So I had 2 extra run intervals and felt good. <BR> <BR> Other than the run - it was a pretty cruddy day, so I'm going to call it a night so I can cross this day off. <BR> ... Thu, 2 Sep 2010 22:14:16 EST September Goals http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3595615 Funny, I had something to write about when I woke up this morning, and now I've forgotten what it was. <em>100</em> <BR> <BR> <BR> A friend invited me to a Hawaiian party thingy tomorrow evening complete with hula hoop contest. I could totally rock the hula! But I've been using a weighted one, the regular kid sized ones are harder to keep up. I did good with it before my weighted one, but I don't know about going back and forth. I'll try it if I see it going on. <em>224</em> Speaking of... Wed, 1 Sep 2010 08:48:13 EST W3D1 C25K http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3593646 I did it! Just finished day 1 of week 3. It wasn't so bad after all. <em>104</em> Probably because there wasn't so many iterations. <em>312</em> <em>311</em> My phone messed up in the middle of the 3d run and I had to fix it so that my app would tell me when to run/walk.. I think that ended up making me run 10 or so seconds more or less... not sure.. but I think it evened out. I don't feel like I got cheated out of part of the run because my legs felt like I went more than the 90 seconds... Tue, 31 Aug 2010 17:00:18 EST Speed Race Eating http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3588981 I remember looking at the clock and saying "it's a couple minutes after 12 no wonder I'm hungry." It's now 12:16 and my food is gone. <em>56</em> Not just gone, devoured! I'm thinking I need to take more time to eat my food. And not eat breakfast while checking email and lunch while staring at the computer. <em>17</em> <BR> <BR> <BR> Yeah, I've heard it said a million times. But if I'm going to do this right, I think that's going to be a goal this week. How much time are you supposed to... Mon, 30 Aug 2010 12:33:25 EST
